($55) Glass-staining purple. Powerful, pungent blackberry, cassis, candied violet and black olive aromas. Sappy dark berry flavors firm up with air, picking up sweet cola, sassafras and candied floral qualities. Leaves spicy red and dark berry notes behind on the sharply focused, gently sweet aftertaste.
